With an increase in the number of cases every day, Sam’s Club announces expanding holiday season sales despite the pandemic.
The latest retailer said on Thursday that rather than having one-day sales will plan to have one in November for nine days and another one in December which will also be for nine days.
The company also extended the Black Friday sale which used to be for four days to ten days now. Retailers like Walmart, Home Depot, Best Buy, Target and Bed Bath & Beyond are promoting early deals in the holiday season unlike any other.
With an online petition, Petco calls on competitors to also end the sale as well for electronic shock collars.
Sam’s Club chief member officer, Tony Rogers, said that it had given their members to save a lot before the season than they used to earlier and this initiative will help in crowd control as well as offer more time for the shoppers to make their purchases.
According to a survey regarding the holiday, shopping plans stated that 61% of the members would prefer shopping online and 31% will still prefer shopping just the way they used to do like last year.
Tony Rogers said that the hot selling items remain the same as in appliances, headphones and furniture. With the pandemic, members prefer multi day events to avoid the rush.
Sam’s Club members can place orders through curbside pickup which had rolled out this summer.
